How often should I buy new wedges? (1 of 18)
How many rounds are on your wedges?
A test completed by Titleist shows that after about 75 rounds of golf, the groove wear becomes significant enough to affect performance.
#FINDITCUTIT (2 of 18)
A new series that began in 2019, #FINDITCUTIT was meant to find the hidden truth inside the golf ball.
The bad, the ugly, and hopefully some good inside the golf ball industry.
We Find It. We Cut It.
Name that driver! ____________________ (3 of 18)
Which driver was the #1 performer for 2020? Take a guess.
SIMILAR BUT DIFFERENT (4 of 18)
A triangle hosel on a Taylormade putter? It’s called the Taylormade Truss and as many of the online investigators have pointed out, this new hosel is not an entirely new design. Titleist had something similar with the Dead Center putter, and a company called Ashdon golf produces putters with triangle hosels.
Does Rust Add Spin? (5 of 18)
It’s not a new trend, but several manufacturers offer a raw finish, which is, for all intents and purposes, a quick-wearing finish, or a lack of finish entirely. Raw wedges are popular on tour – often for their low glare characteristics, and many average golfers choose raw wedges because of the perception that rust adds spin.
PING G710 w/Arccos Caddie (6 of 18)
The PING G710 is also PING’s first iron to come standard with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips and a free trial of the Arccos Caddie app. For those unfamiliar with Arccos, it’s a full-fledged, shot-tracking and performance-management platform.
HEAPS OF HEPPLER HEADS (7 of 18)
Which one do you like best?
The nine heads in the Heppler line are a mix of classics, new takes on classics, and brand-new designs. Though a bit light in the blade department, there really should be a Heppler putter for every golfer’s stroke.
WHICH GRINDS ARE RIGHT FOR ME? (8 of 18)
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of getting fitted for your wedges. It’s an easy way to see a significant improvement and most of you aren’t doing it. And, yes, I’ll concede that legitimate wedge-fitting opportunities are few and far between. That sucks.
Can I Be Your Sugar Daddy? (9 of 18)
For 2020, the most obvious changes are in the design, which in turn creates differences in performance. The 0311 Sugar Daddy Milled wedges are still 100% milled from 8620 carbon steel (a process which takes roughly 3.5 hours per head) though this time, the footprint is ever-so-slightly bigger and the grooves are more aggressive.
The #1 Selling Driver (10 of 18)
The story of TaylorMade’s new SIM lineup of drivers boils down to a single word: Geometry.
If that’s a little bit more complex than your vocabulary is comfortable with, we can go with Shape instead. In fact, Shape is the reason for the S in SIM (the name of the driver family). The I and the M, those set you In Motion.
Shape in Motion – there you have it.
INFINITY FACE (11 of 18)
Cobra Speedzone’s updated milled face technology – Infinity Face – has nothing to do with race cars. It borrows its name from those edgeless infinity pools you typically find at high-end resorts that I can’t afford.
Personal Launch Monitors For Under $500? (12 of 18)
Launch monitors can set you back $12,000 to $25,000!
So, can these $500 units possibly compete?
WET vs DRY (WEDGE SHOTS) (13 of 18)
Our testing showed that, while the worst performing wedges in wet conditions lost nearly 60% of its dry spin, the PING Glide 3.0 wedges lost only 10%. That can be the difference between a 3-foot putt and a 13-foot putt.
MGS Incognito Marker (14 of 18)
Now you see me, now you don’t.
The Incognito Marker embodies the many hidden truths uncovered in the golf industry over the 12 years since MyGolfSpy’s conception. And we’re just getting started.
You may not always see us, but remember: We’re always watching.
Star Wars (15 of 18)
Looking like they came straight out of a George Lucas film, the new Titleist T200 irons make a statement: We have changed.
The rebranding is an effort to put something fresh, different, and quantifiably better on the shelf. Do you think it will work?
Hmm. What was the best driver LAST year? (16 of 18)
Is newer really better? Not always. Let’s take a look back in time at the best drivers from last year.
😱 (17 of 18)
This is the most impactful test we have ever published.
Over the past 10 years, MyGolfSpy has conducted hundreds of tests, and published thousands of articles that have influenced millions of golfers, but no test has the potential to impact golfers and the industry more than this one.
FLAGSTICK IN (vs) FLAGSTICK OUT? (18 of 18)
TESTED: Should golfers leave the flagstick in or take the flagstick out?
Prepare to be shocked.
